Victim of Collision Flees Crash, is Arrested for DUI

Driver who reportedly caused crash follows the victim who fled the scene without identifying himself.

The victim of a non-injury traffic collision Sunday night was arrested after leaving the scene and was reportedly found to be intoxicated.

Arrested was Jose Martinez, 45, on suspicion of DUI and hit and run resulting in property damage. Martinez was issued a citation and released.

The accident was reported at 10:17 p.m. near the intersection of Grand and Mauna Loa avenues. Martinez reportedly left the crash in his silver Chevy and was seen southbound on South Jennifer Avenue, according to scanner reports.

The driver who reportedly caused the crash followed the suspect as he drove away, authorities said

Police located the suspect vehicle nearby and arrested the man.

"The driver who fled was intoxicated, but not at fault," Lamborghini said. "He was crashed into, but he fled, which is illegal."

Under California law, a person can be charged with misdemeanor hit and run if the person leaves the scene of the accident, does not identify themself to involved parties and if the other's property was damaged in the accident.

Another comment to add to what Bill said. GPD can't enforce city pkg ord. on county streets. If San Dimas Sheriff don't respond try politely asking to speak to the watch commander and intelligently discuss the situation with them. The other issue is the CHP are responsible for traffic situations on county roads and if that portion of Arrow is county, and I believe it is, then call Baldwin Park CHP and discuss the situation with them. In the end those issues are the reason I am a pround Glendora resident. As for Dorie's comment about why GPD got involved in the "street robbery" on Arrow hwy is because they took a courtesy report and forwarded it to the Sheriff's Dept for investigation. As for Robin's comments rv parking regualtions. I have a rv and galdly follow the guidelines. They keep the quality of the neighborhoods up and I also want to be a good "rv" neighbor to my friends. My street also has not street lights.......and is safe. If you want street lights the city would be glad to have them installed. Just convince all you neighbors to join you in paying for them through a lighting district accessment.

Debbie, I agree the RV's look horrible, but it is kind of a sign of the times. More homeless scrape together a few dollars for a motorhome or RV of some type, heck I would if I were homeless! I really do wish they found a better place for it though, which is why I am sure they wound up on Arrow Hwy- because the Sheriffs leave them alone! Robin, I am pretty sure if you were my neighbor and constantly left your trailer in your front yard I would get tired of looking at it, as would 99% of the other Glendorans (See Debbies comment above), which is why there is a municipal code; to keep the city looking nice. My street also has no lighting, but my house does and I feel plenty safe with my motion sensor flood lights. Also, if you don't already know what your child needs for school without someone telling you, a website is beyond helping you. You are whining up the wrong tree here.
